's going -- any time there's a use of deadly force by police officers, it's a long investigation and that will go through the investigative process. >> was he threatening the hostages at that point? >> based on the information that we had, we believed that it was -- that the hostages' lives were in danger. >> was he shot from the inside? >> i don't know the answer to that. >> just to be clear, once he was shot, the explosives went off? >> i don't know the order in which he went down and the explosive device went off. >> [ inaudible question ] >> we had been talking to him for several hours, and he had a wide range of emotions during our negotiations. >> and what was his complaint directed at the discovery communications building? >> you know, i don't have all that information. i know that he had some history with folks at discovery channel, and i believe in fact that he was arrested here a couple of years ago, and so we -- there is some history between he and the discovery folks. >> when the explosion went off, was he wearing it? >> i -- i don't know. i don't have any information
to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. for the next hour in which we shall celebrate the launch of lawrence o'donnell's new show which is tonight right after this hour. we shall celebrate the arrival of our new desk which inexplicably has something to do with the start of lawrence's new show with you i'm not sure what. i'm very excite body my new desk. we shall also celebrate the return of barack hussein obama. he is back in talking points just in case any republicans previous efforts to convince you he is secretly foreign did not work on you, they're going to give it one more shot. that's all to come over the course of the hour. >>> but we begin tonight by putting a giant asterisk on the well worn political truism that all politics is local. the big decision democrats had to make about this year's elections was whether or not they would try to run this year's elections as a national campaign, whether they were going to try to run as democrats versus republicans or whether they were going to try to block out everything happening at the national level and, instead, hop
the best word to use. these voters have been used, either going republican for years or falling out of interest and helping republicans get elected. now they can all organize, they can all get on facebook, they can contact these candidates pretty easily and get revved up and drive up votes in a way they didn't used to. one twhoing point out. it is not just that they're electing tea party nominees instead of the establishment choices, the republicans are who have are not being defeated by the tea party, john mccain, for example, end up agreeing with them on the issues. the tea party has been really good, better than the democratic base, at moving the party in the direct they want. the more conservative direction. >> at this point we might as well add marko rubio and make it six versus five. do you have a sense, did miss angle give us more information than she wanted to by talking about the rhetoric of the primary versus the rhetoric of the general? any sense of who will try move away from the work stream positions to take softer angle, no pun intended? >> sharron angle has been refre
strategy. thank you very much for joining us. >> my pleasure, thank you. >> president obama is quoted as saying, this is a direct quote from the book. this needs to be a plan about how we're going to hand off and get out of afghanistan. then he repeatedly, apparently, pushed his top military advisors for an exit plan and they didn't give it it him. does this in a way summarize the dilemma overall. the in fighting in afghanistan? >> it does. people seem apparently shock that there's infighting in the white house. and i would be disappointed if there wasn't. this is a badly flawed strategy. it has a number of holes in it. not least of which is it's not properly resourced. if you were really serious about standing up a functioning nation state in afghanistan, which is our professed goal, you can't do it with even 100,000 troops. you need far more troops and to be there for a very, very long time. >> that's exactly what general petraeus said and i'll ask our graphic folks to skip ahead to the quote from general petraeus from this book. he apparently said to the president, "you have to rec
>> we marched on because we knew good was not releasing us to quit. >> but some of it is hardly that silly. church pedophelia victims today ask of ron johnson republican senate candidate in wisconsin, get the diocese to release the names of the priests involved. because when he was still on a diocese board, he testified on the bill to toughen laws against pedophelia, testified against it, because the new laws would be too tough on business. >> i think it is extremely important to consider the economic havoc and the other victims it would likely create. >> non-sensenbrenner strikes again. if the republicans take the house he wants to turn the select committee on global warming into an investigation of obama's green power initiatives and of the so-called climategate. the 9/11 first responders bill finally passes. and glenn beck says war against fox. >> i know you and i have a special relationship. >> several fox news journalists writes the "new york times" have complained antics are embarrassing fox. it was said if he were still on headline news his event on the mall would have d
, not a run. i'm not getting on the train to da if there's running. >> there will be no running from us. we got a golf cart. i got, like, those tony soprano sweats, velour and we'll be smoking. we're in new york, we have msnbc and "time" magazine analyst laura halprin. chris jansing and in washington, d.c., nbc political analyst pat buchanan. i don't know if pat is lathered up by what happened last night. pat, we'll get to you in a minute. i was awakened though in the middle of the night by a three-alarm -- not tweet, a three-alarm column by mark halprin, framing last night in opinion pox lip tick terms for the republican party. >> so apocalyptic. republicans were taking a senate seat, there was a building block to get back to the senate majority. it's gone barring some truly unforeseeable development. absolute binary switch. republicans now almost impossible to come up with a way they get the ten-seat majority. in the longer term it shows the republican party has a huge problem. they've benefit friday the tea party movement so far. they'll benefit in november but maybe having a huge, huge

"countdown" with keith olbermann starts right now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? from fighting the establishment to becoming it. the tea party has its fifth senatorial candidate who immediately steers away from the tea party. >> the reason we're here today is because of the alaskan voter. the volunteer network that was such an important part of our campaign and all the various endorsements that we got. >> fired up? ready to go? no? can you fake it? the afl-cio's urgent effort to reignite voter enthusiasm. our guest, union president richard trumpka. allan simpson again. first, the lesser evil. then the head of the older women's league should get a real job. now criticizing vietnam vets because they have been given too many benefits. benefits for which simpson voted as senator. >>> unmitigated gall. the biggest lie. the worst foreign policy decision in american history. and the bushies still want an ftd thank you bouquet for it. >> he couldn't be direct about the s

don't impose them on us we pick them here, you guys for eight years or more than that under bush destroyed the republican party 2006. we lost both houses. you nominated somebody that got less of the vote in california than barry goldwater. now, thank you, we will pick our own leaders. and i think it is an excellent message to send. >> by the way that is the speech that edward dirkson gave. >> twice you have taken us down the road to defeat. we shall not follow you again. >> frightening. that was 1952. chuck, here is karl rove. i want chuck to jump in here, karl rove and sean hannity on fox last night with one point of view. let's listen. >> it does conservatives little good to support candidates who at the end of the day, while they may be conservative in their public statements, do not evince the characteristics of rectitude and truthfulness and sincerity and character that the voters looking for. there's just a lot of nutty things she's been saying. sounds like you don't support them, but i will tell you -- >> i'm for the republican, but i got to tell you, we were looking at ei

for staying with us for the next really busy hour. we are starting tonight with an exclusive report. an exclusive report about politics and retaliation. and a politician who was supposed to be a rising star in the republican party, apparently running on fear. fear of exposure. it starts with the issue of illegal immigration. you can tell by the sheer volume of anti-immigrant politicking in the country right now, the illegal immigration problem must really be exploding. that is true if by exploding you mean that it is down 67%. the pugh hispanic center which is widely considered to be the most authoritative source of numbers has release ad new report saying in the last decade, the number illegal immigrants sgroogs the united states has dropped by two-thirds. so the sudden up take in yelling about illegal immigration, blaming immigrants for everything from obama being elected to swine flu to kidnapping the lindenberg baby, that's not happening because illegal immigration is getting worse. it is actually getting better. the up take in immigration stuff is not really about immigration a
